Reworked. Added a moon and some grass and changed the title. I liked this version better than the last post.

Murry Grigsby October 23, 2007

Maybe it's just because of the order I saw these wonderful images but I still like the first one best :0) This one is nice but the first one was perfect IMHO Judy!! I think the moon detracts a little from the simple warm story of the original version? #4966151

Judith G. Secco October 23, 2007

Thanks so much everyone. Murry I think you may have a good point here. I see what you are saying and appreciate your comments. #4966213

Mike D. Perez level-deluxe October 23, 2007

Very creative and artistic presentation, Judit! I went back and looked at the first posting. I like this one better because of the more textured and brighter background. The brighter composition caught my attention. Could have done without the moon but still a very nice image. #4966304

Tamara K. Walker level-classic October 23, 2007

Superb work. #4967432

Marsha S. Smith October 23, 2007

I LOVE this! Looks like some very old oil painting. I love the moon! I looked at the other shot and although I liked it too, this one is definitely my fave of the two. #4968277

Sarah F. Myers October 23, 2007

Wow... This is a very good photo but it's my worst nightmare... I have a problem with goats and goat related animals. I had a nightmare where one was chasing me one time.
My mother showed me this one a while ago and I thought it was really funny because that's exactly something that would scare me!

But again very good picture!!! =D #5194008
